A poem for Bo (my dog)
Posted May 4th, 2018 by Werty
in my room, making no noise and pretending I do not exist.
What if Bo didn't get Lime Disease?
Or have to be put down today?
Just because you took away the Lyme, doesn't fix everything.
What if I didn't have to be sad?
What if dogs could not get sick?
What if Jaxi could heal him just by jubbing his bunny ears on him?
What if the world celebrated him?
That would set everything right.
What if disease didn't exist?
What if poverty and mad killers and robbers and global warming and harmful radiation and littering and bad people didn't exist?
Well, then, where would we be?
Living on the moon?
Farther in the future?
Wouldn't we just be back at the beggining?
What if my dog didn't have to die.
Some things are not preventable.
So why are you sitting here asking what if, and not asking why?
Why is there disease?
Why are there so many things wrong in the world?
Why aren't enough people trying to stop it?
Why does this have to be happening to me, in my house, to my dog.
